A little about our host:
Jennifer Seavey is the Executive Director of Cornell’s Shoals Marine Laboratory. Dr. Seavey is a broadly trained ecologist whose work focuses on issues in seabird ecology, spatial ecology, marine science, and conservation biology. Dr. Seavey’s research examines the influence of anthropogenic environmental change on wildlife populations and ecosystem function. Over the last decade, she has studied how climate change, especially in combination with other anthropogenic stressors, influences coastal ecosystem function and threatened species conservation. Her current projects include seabird ecology and the conservation of endangered species in the fast-changing Gulf of Maine. Dr. Seavey is also interested in science education methods and the role of the arts in enhancing science skills.
